Features

Genius Project has for mission to ease up managers' life by facilitating the process of planning, staffing, executing and tracking through the provision of tools that will automate certain functions. It can help have a bird view over everything that is going on at any point in time in a company.

The reporting capabilities of this software allows for issues to be easily posted on a public dashboard in real time so that users who have a solution can propose it as soon as possible. With the Gantt Chart, employees will also have a better picture of what tasks need to be taken for the project to continue moving and what resources have been made available for them.

Genius Project 5 Pros

  • Social management tool integrated, allowing better collaboration
  • Advanced reporting dashboards available with option to display them in Gantt Charts
  • Available in multiple languages and currencies
  • Possible to customize applications and integrate certain templates

Genius Project 2 Cons

  • The telephone support service is not available 24/7
  • Does not offer any app for Windows Phone

Competitors & Alternatives

Genius Project can be compared to Clarizen, AtTask, Project Insight, Project Manager, Daptiv PPM and Tenrox. Most of these softwares are available online but it is only Genius Project, Project Manager Project Insight and Tenrox that offer an On-premises version for companies interested.
 
You also have to note that AtTask, Project Insight and Project Manager don't have advanced project management tools like the Workflow Engine.
 
When it comes to team collaboration, Genius Projects fails to offer Email-Only Accounts. That is where it gets overtaken by Clarizen, AtTask, Project Insight and Daptiv PPM. That said Genius Project has the advantage of integrating social media tools. Clarizen, Daptiv and Tenrox don't have such features.
 
For businesses that very much depend on invoicing, Genius Project might not be the best choice but rather Clarizen, AtTask or Project Manager.
